SOURCE: my tv turns off by itself and makes a clicking noise

Most likely it has some bad capacitors in the power supply. Flat--panel sets are VERY hard on capacitors, due to the fact that the "rising heat' from the set "cooks" the caps and they fail VERY early.

I would check out the power supply module for bad caps with bulging tops. Check DC voltages at the output connectors, you should have 5, 12, 24V.

SOURCE: clicking sounds and delay when turning on lcd tv LE52M86BD


A common fault with this model is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your tv and look at the power supply for bulged / swollon capacitors on top, they may even leak a brown like substance and should have a value of around 1000uf 10v
Change these where possible with the same uf but higher voltage lets say 1000uf 25/35v
Hope this helps

SOURCE: My P42 keeps turning itself


Disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 30 minutes and then turn ON the TV.This would reset the TV. If you still see the same problem, it confirms a hardware failure.

As you could hear a clicking noise, it is more suggestive of a power supply problem. This a common problem on most of the Vizio's TV. You need to open the TV. Locate the power supply board. You would be able to find blown / bulged / leaked IC's. Take them out and re-solder the new one. ( you could get the caps from radio shack or even from fry's ).

I am pretty sure that it would solve the problem. If the problem still persists, revert and we could troubleshoot further.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

There is a 10 -15 minute delay before sound comes on. It's a Polaroid TTM2401 tv 5 yrs old

Change all the capacitors in and around around the sound output section. Usually Philips capacitors shows a some sort of leak after some years. I says this according my service experience. I'm working with this kind of electonic entertainement equipements since 1974. We cannot predict the exact capacitor poise the problem. That is why recomeds to change all of them. It won't cost so much.

Delay to see the picture

Your power supply is going south, I have an old sony with the same problem. The voltage level drops and does not have enough 'kick' to start. It will work better when it is warm. The module will need to be replaced.
